acme chem dry choosing the right carpetIs the time to replace your home’s carpet approaching? Maybe your carpet is getting worn out, or maybe you’ve just had enough of the old 1970’s carpet in your house. The carpet plays a big role in your home.

There are a lot of things to consider when purchasing new carpets. More important than color, style, or the brand is this: finding a carpet that is durable, stain resistant, and one that will maintain its quality despite the attack of energetic children and pets.

It may be that your dog likes to dig holes in the backyard and then come inside with muddy feet, or it may be that your baby doesn’t agree with the the latest meal. When life happens, you will be glad that you have carpet is built to last.


The Magic of a Synthetic Fiber Carpet

Carpets aren’t cheap. They are a big investment. With many to choose from, make your choice a little easier by narrowing it down to a synthetic, as opposed to ‘natural’, fiber carpet.

Synthetic carpet fibers such as nylon are a good choice. The sturdy, synthetic fibers hold their shape and hold up well against spills and high amounts of foot traffic. It can be a more expensive option, but the color and shape will last longer.


Don’t Forget About Polyester!

If stains and spills are a common occurrence in your home, a stain-resistant carpet of polyester would be perfect for you. With polyester you can have the best of both worlds – stain resistant AND soft! There’s no better option for those who want the carpet to feel good, look good, and last long.


Choose a Medium Shade Carpet

You want your carpets to look new, but no matter how hard you try, it is nearly impossible to keep high-traffic areas clean of dirt buildup. One thing that helps with this is the carpet color you choose. To avoid dirty-looking carpets, go with a medium shade color.

Generally, very light colored carpets as well as dark colors are harder to keep looking clean.
